2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid Review


A direct competitor to the Toyota Camry Hybrid, the 35mpg (maximum) Nissan Altima Hybrid is a solid performer, say Nissan Altima Hybrid reviews at Hybridcars.com and Cars.com. In particular, reviewers say they appreciate the traction control and plethora of airbags.

The Altima Hybrid has a leg up on the competition with its 2.5-liter engine (versus the Camry's 2.4-liter) and its 20-gallon fuel tank, which is almost three gallons more than the Camry and clearly increases your driving range between fill ups. Nissan Altima Hybrid reviews note, however, that the biggest difference between the Altima Hybrid and the Camry Hybrid is the driving noise. The Nissan is noticeably louder but also a bit more powerful.

If you're really set on an Altima Hybrid, you may have to travel to buy one. This model is only available in eight states: California, Oregon, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
